The Vietnam memorial honours the troops who paid the ultimate price for our governments decision to fight a war for someone else. This is a fitting tribute to the fallen in this grossly misunderstood war.

Vietnam stirs many emotions, and this carefully designed memorial is entirely appropriate. It gives the visitor the chance to sit and consider the myriad of emotions that swirl through the mind when observing the many details presented here. Well worth a visit.

Stand and think about what they endured. Hard to imagine, always supported the troops but always questioned the government reasons.

This memorial very powerfully conveys the experiences of our Vietnam veterans. Standing inside it can be eerily quiet. The names of all of our people who died in that war are in the ring that is suspended over the inside of the memorial.
